Abstract Correction of an earlier supplement to the end of the hypothesis of Euripides’ Philoctetes : his own welfare forces Philoctetes to follow the Greek towards Troy.
Abstract Although numerous studies have been dedicated to the rescript of Mark Antony, copied out on the verso of the Anonymus Londinensis, the context in which this text was written has been little studied. The rescript could be closely connected to the medical text on the recto, notably by its...
Abstract Studies on the change in prices in late third century Egypt are based on a small sample of texts difficult to date. If CPR XVIII and P.Heid. VI 383, where the silver standard is used, belong to the reign of Ptolemy III, as is argued here, the date of 211/210 proposed by Reekmans may be...
Abstract P.Oxy LXXVI 5094 is a papyrus text with mythographical notes, including some quotations of Homer. The hitherto accepted length of the lines is not sufficient for the required supplements: the lines must have been considerably longer.
